Looks like they can be, hope so because I may pick up a set in blue when I go back to blue. I have their red ones and they are great. I just have to wait for another 50% off sale when they do it.

It's not completely done yet, still gotta get ssds. I've probably saved about 300$ thanks to my micro center discounts

Hey guys, as I am planning my first build I have been torn between the 350d and 750d, juggling what I really need in terms of space, and how big it will be in person. Could anyone provide a picture of each of these cases next to each other? Thanks in advance smile.gif

Well TBH it all depends what you want from the system and what you are trying to cram inside it, images can be deceiving, and on top of that what are you using it for?

I am pretty sure that this has been answered already, you will need to cut the 5.25 bay out of the case. There are a few rivets that need to be drilled but the cage also needs to be cut in the areas specified in the pics, red boxes. The picture is of my case mod, Close Quarters and I did cut the cage out with a Dremel. thumb.gif

I am using it as a gaming machine and workstation. I do a decent amount of work in the adobe creative suit, and am getting more and more into video edition, looking to start a youtube channel.

Ah, ok, well let give you this advise then the 350 is great for AiO cooling,smaller unique loop setups, and serves decently in Air cooling. With your application a 350D can be perfect for matx solutions as you probably wont need the high horsepower beyond 1080p content for Adobe creator for YouTube, however depending on your gaming needs the 750D may be a better match if you want a tri crossfire or SLI solution for going the route of 1440p,1600p, or even 4k.

Personally I'd wait till 3rd quarter for the x99 chipset boards, as x79 is a dead platform, depending on financial situation and time constraints, if you want to go the workstation/gaming hybrid with Titans or 290x s, however the z78 Haswell may just be enough for your needs as at this point PCIe 3.0 8x isn't even a bottleneck yet as no GPU can saturate the BUS, most people are shrinking to matx for a smaller footprint PC for gaming and the diminishing returns on a 3rd GPU for gaming make tri SLI/Crossfire less desirable. The 4770k chip on z78 also makes a compelling chip for a budget mainstream workstation rig.

Overall both are great chassis but if you want a large custom loop or are cramming high amounts of HDDs and other components go the 750d for the extra space and functionality.

Here it is next to a 650d



And in this video they have it next to a 750d at 0:36 http://youtu.be/b1X1ur2-LFg?t=36s

Really the question is if you want an matx board or an atx board, if you don't know what that means, then you should watch this video about the difference.

Thanks for the picture that helps me a lot! In regards to what form factor I want, I was not able to determine any capabilities that I would lose going from an atx to an matx. I was planning on going with the asus vi hero or the gene, and can not see where I would lose any functionality stepping down to the gene. Can you?

Well it depends on what your budget is, and what ATX board you would get instead. The main advantage of the ATX size is that you get more PCI slots, so this means, you can potentially put in more graphics cards, a sound card, a raid card, a wifi card etc. But I ask what you budget is, because that would really determine if it is worth it, because if you can't buy an ATX board that can tri or quad SLI/crossfire, and you aren't planning on needing a sound card, raid card, wifi card, etc, then it doesn't really matter that much. If you are planning on spending about $200 on a mobo, there aren't that many $200 mobos that can tri/quad sli/crossfire, which is really the major thing. With the matx you can sli/crossfire, but you might not be able to fight another expansion card in there, like a sound card, raid card, wifi card etc, although they are supposed to be able to fit that. If you go with the VI gene, then you definitely can't fit in another card if you SLI/crossfire, due to the arrangement of the PCI lanes.

That may have been a little much info and not enough formatting, so if you have any questions ask, if you want suggestions on a motherboard, I would say you should ask the people in the motherboard forums, I'm not really an expert on that sort of thing.
